Shakespeare Summer Festival at Everglades

Join us under the stars for Sport for Jove's 11th Summer Season at Leura Everglades. For the month of January enjoy two of Shakespeare's most popular plays in the stunning gardens of Everglades as award winning theatre company Sport for Jove put on performances of Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night.

Romeo & Juliet:

The furiously energetic new production of Romeo & Juliet is characterised by a true vision of today’s youth – the rarely seen innovation of actual teenagers playing the play’s children – Juliet, Romeo, Paris, Mercutio, Benvolio, Balthazar, all aged 14-18, and surrounded by an extraordinary cast of experienced players, gives this production an authenticity and honest rawness, danger and the genuine awkwardness of youth.


Twelfth Night:

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit

The twelfth night is the last day of the Christmas cycle, a night of madness where the world turns upside down, where grief and joy and laughter and tears are all one. When mere mortals have the power to choose who they are, what they believe in and who they may love. In this rollicking production from director Christopher Stollery, music and mayhem will fill the summer night.
